Omfg night and day over stock. Dive is gone, corner stability is great, actually turning like it should now!
Install was pretty easy just needed the right tools. took about 3 hours. would have been a bit faster if 1) i didnt' have a triple tree stand failure (bike didn't fall, but i had to swap stands) 2) i used a torch instead of a heatgun and 3) i had the right tools the first time (takes a lot longer to start and stop than to keep rolling)

Thank you hardarcing!!!!

if anyone has any questions on the install, feel free to ask

the rear is actually bearable. it's not great, but it isn't anywhere near as bad as the front

Quick question, I ordered the front Ohlin's without the tool rental, now it will take 4 weeks to get the tools from Hardracing. Would you rent the tools to me.

Speaking of pogo'ing, did it feel like the front wheel was bouncing while going down a straight, fairly smooth road as well? I've been feeling that, but wasn't sure if it was my imagination or possibly an out of balance wheel. If you did experience pogo'ing before has it since been cured by the Ohlins upgrade?

Thanks for any info.

YES! i'm not sure what the hell that was. an out of round tire, or a suspension that doesn't handle small dips, a bearing going bad, or a warped rotor maybe. i balanced the wheel, checked runout (straight) and swapped tires, and it was still there. it did get much better with the ohlins, though sometimes i can feel that still.

Thanks for the update. I haven't done any checks on the wheel, etc as I figured it might just be the poorly suspended front end, esp with my larger framed self on it. haha Good to hear the Ohlins took some/most of it away.
